Democrat President Joe Biden abruptly ended his prepared remarks to labor unions this week by announcing that he had been ordered to stop speaking and walk out of the room. He then asked for permission to re-enter the room and say hello to the audience.
“So folks, you do it all, I’m sorry to go on so long but uh, I can’t, I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for the country and what you’ve done for me over my career,” Biden said. “You’ve educated me, you’ve brought me along and uh, you’ve, you’ve always been there. ”
Biden then abruptly announced, “I‘m supposed to stop and walk out of the room here,” eliciting nervous laughter from the audience. He continued in a monotone, “I’m gonna stop, but with your permission, I’m gonna walk into the room because I want to say hello to all of you. Thank you.”

The President also recently shared his meteorological expertise during a rant about tornadoes on Tuesday, claiming “they don’t call ’em that anymore”:
President of the United States and amateur meteorologist Joe Biden made some strange claims about weather events during a recent public appearance, declaring that an unknown “they” no longer use the term tornadoes. Biden advocates defended the President by claiming he was referencing derechos, a different type of storm, but were unable to explain why Biden claimed tornadoes are not called tornadoes anymore.
“Uh, you know, the, looks like a tornado, they don’t call ’em that anymore, that hit the crops and, and wetlands in the middle of the country, and, and Iowa, and Nevada, and, I mean it’s just across the board,” Biden explained. “And uh, you know um, uh, as I said we’re in this together.”
Biden has held far fewer press conferences than any President in recent history.
